About Torquil & Jenn Deacon

Lumiere is loved and owned by the Deacon family, seen above heading to Goodwood Revival 2015.

Torquil & Jenn Deacon purchased this house in 2011

Why Torquil & Jenn Deacon chose West Sussex

The property is situated on Marine Drive, West Wittering and is a 2 minute walk to the beach. The village of East Wittering is a short walk the other direction which has an array of shops providing a variety of local provisions including green grocers, butchers, bakeries, 2 mini supermarkets along with a variety of cafes including Drift in Café, Samphire Restaurant, Billys on the Beach and several take away restaurants. Other favourites include The Beach House, The Old House at Home Inn, Lamb Inn in West Wittering and the Ship Inn at Itchenor.

5 minutes drive way is West Wittering Blue Flag beach and East Head Nature reserve with miles of white sandy beach and dunes. There is range of facilities including sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, paddle boarding, car parking and café.

Nestled in the South Downs National Park, Goodwood is 11 miles away and holds the world famous Festival of Speed in June and Revival in September along with horse racing at 'Glorious' Goodwood. Closer by is the historic walled city of Chichester (8 miles) with its stunning cathedral, theatre, cinema, bowling alley and excellent shops. Drive East of Chichester on the A27 and you will find Arundel and the Castle and Brighton beyond and half an hour away to the West is Portsmouth with it Naval Dockyard, and shopping at Gunwarf Quays. There is a direct train service from London Victoria to Chichester (85 minutes).

What makes this house unique

Simply put, we feel that holiday time is precious and we personally would not like to stay anywhere where comfort is compromised by providing tempur mattresses, high quality bed linen, bone china etc....you will find an eclectic mix of vintage and new which adds character to this beautiful seaside home.

American and English family get together

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as we expected from the listing information and very well maintained with comfortable beds which was important to a bunch of old people. The East Wittering village was just round the corner from the house with a great pub and very good restaurants. Not having to drive to pubs or restaurants was perfect. I would certainly recommend this property for family of all age's.

A bit too "Shabby Chic"

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped property. A bit too "Shabby Chic" for me and twin bedroom very small for 2 single beds. Also no instructions for using Aga cooker and as Aga on all the time it was very warm in the kitchen but we did have a very hot week.

If holidaying with very young children the aga could burn little hands.

Stunning,high end rental,exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this little gem enough & I think I can be quite ,hard to please :-) Lumiere literally has everything you need, fantastic location, we loved getting morning coffee from Drifters just round the corner. Our three children really enjoyed playing in the garden & rolling down to the beach which is so close. The house has been so delightfully laid out - the great kitchen island, an aga which everyone needs at the beach to dry towels etc (as well as Cook on), the amazingly comfy beds. All the luxurious details - Ralph Lauren bedding, The White Company, wonderfully smelling Neom air diffusers, gorgeous crockery & enough cake & jelly moulds to keep any baker very happy. Just love this place, well done the Deacons for creating such a special retreat we had so much fun in your lovely home. Thank you!

A wonderful, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at the property last week and had a wonderful relaxing time. It was a rare opportunity to spend a few days with our grown up children, and all commented on how perfect the house was for some down-time. A great place. Glyn & Karen

Perfect beach location. Comfortable & clean. Cosy & well maintained. Great to be able to take the dogs. The family really enjoyed our stay & can't wait to return! The garden was smashing. Thank you Jenn & Tourquil for a wonderful stay.
